- UPDATED, March 15
Anton, ON6NL and Henk, ON4AHF are currently in the Democratic Republic of Congo working with the MÃ©decins Sans FrontiÃ¨res (Doctors Without Borders) organisation. They have been there for over two weeks and expect to stay approx five more days. Last week, 9Q0AR/6 had been operating from the South Kivu region of DRC. Since yesterday 9Q0HQ & 9Q0AR have been active from Kinshasa.
Their workload includes setting up repeaters within the DRC and, during last weekend (March 13-14), they set up classes for locals who are very interested to know what Ham Radio is. Each classroom had between 20-25 people learning about our great hobby.
Using wire antennas and an FT-897, look for 9Q0AR and 9Q0HQ (club callsigns) on CW/SSB. QSL both calls via ON6NL.
